“MK”: “ruby” is one of those clubs, from which we are entitled to expect in the spring of tangible progress. First, the team is not in need of extra views, Kurban Berdyev, and secondly — Kazan with his composition entitled to something more than a place in the second ten of the standings.

Kurban Berdyev true to his football principles, that his work in “Rubin” in the present appeal it begins with the traditional move — in gathers the team and their players. This approach has never let the coach and each club with similar input he has made progress, significantly surpassing even the wildest expectations. But, as corny as it may sound, for becoming a team takes time. Sooner or later, “Rubin” will play and will return to their bar discerning on the former, the medal height. What is the degree of readiness of Kazan for the moment, and show a meeting with “Anzhi”.

They, in turn, though, and look on paper the main contender to make the SKA a company in the FNL next season, his game at the end of the first part of the championship tried to inspire optimism in fans. The team was given bright periods, but to stabilize the game Vadim Skripchenko during the first part of the championship and failed. Now it was a few months, so that from the southerners we are entitled to expect progress. Prediction: 1:1

“MK”: CSKA, like other leaders of the championship, forcing winter training due to their participation in the Europa League, is in a slightly better position. And the factor of their field will be in the Moscow match in last place. But in what form will appear in front of us, “Ural”, we can only guess. Prediction: 1:0

“Zenith” (St.-Petersburg) — “Amkar” (Perm)

Stream: “Our football”

“MK”: If the rumors about leaving the club Haji Hajiyev confirmed that Permyakov will have a very nervous end of season. Vadim Evseev, no doubt, able to charge players ‘ emotions, but to maintain residence in the Premier League would be good this emotion to multiply the experience and coaching wisdom, which the still young coach have to gain. As for the composition, do not rule out the possibility that taken from CSKA to rent Aaron Alanara will be the main trump card of Perm in the struggle for survival. However, the possibility that the Nigerian will become unnecessary in the balance, cannot be ruled out.

A definite favourite of course is “Zenith”. Yes, Roberto Mancini managed the first part of the championship to accustom to the fact that in such a game and can play 0:0, but a higher level of readiness (thank you, Celtic), the staffing and the factor of their field, make the chances are for points close to zero. Prediction: 2:0

KB: 1,70—3,20—4,90

Stream: “Our football”

“MK”: Let the “bulls” in the first part of the championship played very smoothly, the points they gained with a pleasant regularity. Now Igor Shalimov, the dismissal of which the past summer and fall were talking more often than dismissals of coaches out of the relegation zone, was a great opportunity to establish the mechanism of “Krasnodar”. Did Igor Mikhailovich to do it — show match with a completely unpredictable Karpinsky “Rostov”. Prediction: 1:0

4 March, Sunday

“SKA-Khabarovsk” (Khabarovsk) — Tosno (Tosno)

11.00. Khabarovsk. Lenin stadium (15 200)

Stream: “Our football”

“MK”: Both players have opened their football season Cup matches, but if tenency quite confidently stepped into the semi-finals, Khabarovsk his ticket lost Yaroslavl “Shinnik” in a penalty series. But it is not bad luck in the 11-meter lottery. SKA failed to score. So why in the match, winning should be easier? Prediction: 0:1

“Ufa” (Ufa) — Dynamo (Moscow)

14.00. Ufa. The Stadium “Neftyanik” (15 200)

The total value of the players: 25 430 000 / 26 200 000

Stream: “Our football”

“MK”: the Opponents are quite similar to each other. And the level of team skill, and for scoring the indicators and the philosophy of the coaches. And Dmitry Hohlov, and Sergei Semak always gravitated to playing fluid football, which is manifested in the actions of their teams on the field. Their main transfer objectives for the winter, which was to ensure to keep their leaders, and hopefully, and Muscovites are fulfilled, and the latter also a couple of very successful acquisitions made, but Pogrebnyak was able to get rid of. When reasonably apparent equality opponents in the potential can be a decisive factor. Although a draw still seems the most likely. Prediction: 0:0

“Lokomotiv” (Moscow) — “Spartak” (Moscow)

16.30. Moscow. Stadium “The Locomotive” (28 800)

The total value of the players: 63 000 000 / 120 800 000

Last clash: 1:1

Stream: “Our football”

“MK”: the Central match of the tour, the Moscow Derby — giving projections for such meetings, there is always a chance to get a finger to the sky, but more likely to sit in a puddle. So stop on in cautious and non-committal the score was 1:1, which is more satisfied with a leader in the championship “railroad” than dreaming them to catch up with Spartacus.

If to speak about the pros and cons of rivals before the meeting, it should be noted that red-white managed to save a little power in Samara, where on Wednesday at the initiative of the Muscovites was cancelled the quarterfinals of the Cup with “Wings of the Soviets”. But to make a flight on the route Moscow—Samara—Moscow still had. Staffing problems have Massimo Carrera remain the same — long injured Georgy Jikia, and another Central defender Serdar Taski was replaced at the beginning of the return match with athletic Bilbao due to health problems.

Loko losses composed of no, but to judge the readiness of clubs only two ligeiramente matches (the sum of the two meetings, the team of Yuri Semin was the French “nice”) is extremely difficult. At a fairly similar chances of success in determining the pattern of play factor and may be extremely motivated. If Loko wins, I will make a full bid for the championship. If wins over “Spartacus”, “Golden” intrigue escalates to the limit. In such circumstances, to expect the repetition of the merry 3:4 that was recorded on the scoreboard, “the Opening of” in the first round, hardly worth it. Prediction: 1:1

“Arsenal” (Tula) — “Ahmad” (Ivan)

19.00. Tula. The Arsenal Stadium (20 048)

The total value of the players: 26 400 000 / 34 680 000

Referee: Vladislav Bezborodov (Saint Petersburg)

Head coach: Miodrag Bozovic / Mikhail Galaktionov

Leaders: Kirill Kombarov / Andrey Semenov

The meeting in the first round: 2:1

The last meeting in Tula: 0:0

Total balance: +1=2-2, 4:8

KB: 2,25—2,85—2,80

Stream: “Our football”

“MK”: “Arsenal” — another team, from which we can expect rapid progress in the second part of the championship. A couple of interesting acquisitions will only increase the variability in attack the gunners, who are without Artem Dzuba under the leadership of Bozovic looked quite interesting and pretty, albeit slightly, and passed in the last autumn-winter tours. But it was from Arsenal, along with Rubin, we can expect pleasant surprises this spring.

“Ahmad”, which is every time you want the habit to call “Terek” has not changed in the main — logic in the personnel decisions of the team had not seen before. But there were times when even the most absurd and ridiculed by all and Sundry passages of the club bore fruit. Long-term forecasts on “Ahmad” — a gone case, something resembling a game of chance. It seems that in Grozny created a team, which is not meant for places in Euro cups, but also can only to fly in the wildest of circumstances, and that calmed down. Prediction: 1:0
